Tavern Brawl Announced for Hearthstone

Blizzard's ever popular collectable battle card game is getting a new mode in the near future.

Dated for mid-June, Tavern Brawl will unlock for any players that have levelled up one of their hero characters to Level 20 or above. 

In a blog post available on Battle.net, Blizzard further detailed the mode.

"Each week, a different Tavern Brawl will pit you head to head versus another player using exciting and unique rules. One week might feature preset decks, while another week could have you crafting a brand new Tavern Brawl deck following specific guidelines, while others might offer buffs to specific minion types—who knows!

Tavern Brawl can be found below the Play, Solo Adventures, and the Arena buttons on the main Hearthstone screen. You may have to toughen up before entering the fray—Tavern Brawl is unlocked once a player has a level 20 Hero. 

The possibilities for fun inside Tavern Brawl are endless— the only thing you should expect is the unexpected!"

Tavern Brawls will have free admission when the new mode becomes available, with players receiving a free card pack for winning their first match of the week on serveral of the early brawls. After each brawl ends, there will be a period of a few days with no Tavern Brawl available.

Blizzard also teased additional playable characters on top of the previously announced Magni Bronzebeard, stating the following.

"Magni Bronzebeard, King of Khaz Modan and Thane of Ironforge, is the new Warrior Hero. This noble dwarf will bring the hammer down upon his foes! He’s not the only new face coming to the tavern, and there are more heroes yet to come."
